Salvador Dali's The AT-ATs


While stunning, Salvador Dali's designs for the AT-ATs where far too delicate. Still, it was a lot better than his Persistence of Time Death Star. (AT-Dali by Jill Wilson. Link via Geek-Art)

Calvin, Hobbes And The Masters of the Universe


By the Power of Grayskull, I have transmogrified! I'm a sucker for a Calvin and Hobbes parody and I think Hobbes would make a fine Battle Cat.

Last Alien Supper


"Battlestar Galactica has gotten the Last Supper treatment. So have Lost and Star Wars. So why shouldn't Sigourney Weaver and the others stars of Alien also get to populate one of the world's most famous paintings?"

Alien Last Supper, from B3ta user The Great Architect in challenge to create retro sci-fi movie posters. (Link via John Farrier at Neatorama, who knows I love my Last Suppers)

Dawn Of The 'Toons

Mr. Pwesident: Commander-In-Diapers


"Was sitting at lunch the other day with friends playing a common game among story artists... thinking up "bad movie ideas that you could actually see getting made". This concept is so high (drug reference pun intended), it needed to have a poster made for it. And don't ask why Clint Eastwood is in the movie...he just is, it was a bad career choice."

From Pixar story artist Josh Cooley, who also made created Inappropriate Little Golden Books.

Cantina Road


If the Mos Eisley spaceport is the most "wretched hive of scum and villainy," is it like Berlin was to the Beatles? So by the time the Cantina Band made their Abbey Road, where were they playing? Coruscant? Or am I over-thinking this t-shirt? Yeah probably. (Cantina Road by Jason Tracewell)

It's Tough Out There For A Mascot


Won't somebody please think of the advertising icons? Poor things only know how to shill. (From artist Sarah Ingledew's final major project - thanks to John at Neatorama for the tip)

A few more items from Gallery 1988's 3G (Ghostbusters, Gremlins, Goonies) show with The Autumn Society, like Scott Derby's Marine inspired tattoo.


Jay Bevenour's Gs go up to 4, with a Goya-inspired  Sta-Puftus.



I love Germán Orozco's retro take on the team — it's like Steamboat Mickey meets the Ghostbusters.

Goldilocks Is A Villain


"Three little pigs, three blind mice, three bears, three villains, three rows of fairy tale fearsomeness."

I'm convinced, Goldilocks is a villain. A great tee by SeedUvPain, but I don't think it has printed. Too bad.

Starship Care Bears

"This is for all you new bears: I only have one rule. Everyone fights. No one quits. You don't do your job, I'll shoot you myself. You get me?"

I'm so pleased to know the Care Bears finally started kicking some ass — all the greeting-card inspired caring just got to be too much. Everyone fights. No one quits from Lead Paint. (Link via Culture Kills)
